QuickBOLT’s QB2 with 3” Microflashing has officially received Miami-Dade County acceptance, enabling easier permitting processes, greater permit approval coverage and savings on solar installation projects.
QB2 was approved by the state of Florida in January 2021. This meets state requirements and improves the prospects of installing contractors across the state. However, QB2’s permit position is significantly improved by Miami-Dade NOA.
Due to the high-velocity hurricane zone (HVHZ), Miami-Dade has one the most stringent approval processes in the country. To ensure that products are safe in extreme weather conditions, all new projects must comply with a set of requirements. The Miami-Dade County NOA demands that products undergo rigorous product evaluations. These include both structural engineering as well as water ingress protection.
Having Miami-Dade NOA for both tests in one – as QB2 has – allows installers to skip project-specific stamped engineering and save on permitting costs. This allows installers to speed up the permitting process, save money on each job and also saves time. QB2 mounts in 1.5-2 hours per 7kW system.
QB2 can be mounted over asphalt shingle. It can also be installed on flat roofs with EPDM, rolled asphalt, or TPO. Mounting over the shingle with QB2’s Microflashing, rather than lifting shingles to install sheet metal flashing, protects the integrity of the roof by maintaining the existing roof protections. Top mounting is made possible by patented BoltSeal mechanical-compression technology and the company’s over 30 years of experience developing wood fasteners with Quickscrews International, parent company of QuickBOLT.
QB2 is available in stainless steel (part #17662), and black (part #17862), for customers who want an all-black array. QuickBOLT allows you to purchase QB2 directly, but QB2 is also available at many Miami-Dade County distributors.
